Fayetteville Modern Home Tour is Saturday

fvillehometour2 2013Who doesn’t like getting a peek at other people’s homes, especially unique homes like those on the 2013 Fayetteville Modern Home Tour set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26?!

During the tour, about five or six private, modern homes around Fayetteville and northwest Arkansas will open to the public explore modern architecture and décor. Here’s a rundown of the homes on the tour so far, according to a press release:

  • A shining example of Mid-Century Post Modern in the Mt. Sequoyah Woods, built in 1949 by internationally-acclaimed architect Edward Durell Stone, and currently under heavy updating. The Modern Home Tour will serve as the home’s new, modern debut.

 

  • A fantastic transformation of a standard ranch-style home atop Mt. Sequoya into a piece of modern art, by Modus Studio, with opened living areas and floor-to-ceiling windows.

 

  • A brand new second-floor apartment, designed by Albert and Lisa Skiles of Skiles Architect, PA, that sits atop an historic structure in the heart of Fayetteville’s entertainment district. The interior design is by Missi Walker, ASID.

 

  • A gorgeous home, designed by Bradley Edwards, located on 100 acres of Ozark wilderness and sitting along the edge of a mountain stream which empties into the White River. The house acts as a screen in which the user must “pass through” to encounter this stunning view.
